I think the argument is, that knowing that Bombardier is willing to preemptively do warranty work on some of the streetcars, at no cost to TTC, is going to make the board less likely to order 60 new cars at (using 2009 dollars) $3.5 million each, and instead retender it, keeping in mind that the next lowest bid last time was $7.5 million a car.

(which on one hand sounds crazy - but that would be so TTC).

And while I wish that you were wrong on that, unfortunately I can't argue against it.

Transsee currently has 4519 in the service bay so either that wasn't the plan or the plan had to change?

4520 and 4521 also pinging from the service bays.

Some hours after I post the info, 4519 took a trip to Broadview station and enter the service bay upon arrival back at the yard. Haven't seen this before. All 3 cars currently in the service bay.

4520 just left the yard as 504 (BRBS) in service after 17 days being and ahead of 4519.

It and the other 2 cars have being having issues with the GPS this week.

4519 has some issues to keep it from going into service last week and it GPS has been all over the place since then more than showing it in the service bay.

No new cars have been off loaded this week so far, with 2 in  CP yard and one in route.

512 is still partially done by Leslie 

Technically, it is not. All scheduled runs on 512 operate out of Roncesvalles.

However, in addition to the scheduled service, there are normally 2 service relief cars on 512 during the daytime on weekdays and those are operated from Leslie.

As I said, all scheduled runs pull out of Roncesvalles. The two service relief cars that are on 512 every weekday and pull out of Leslie are not tied to a specific scheduled run and can be pulled off the route if needed.

Car 4444 has been at Roncesvalles since January 10. It was on a scheduled run that pulled out of Roncesvalles this morning. With the run number changes that happen all the time throughout the day, it became a service relief car and it ran in to Leslie this afternoon. Car 4418 has now been added (from Leslie) as a change-off in its place.

Looks like 4521 is ready for service on Sat, as its in the yard on track 14 after being here 17 days.

I guess we will 4523 on Monday and maybe 4524 by the end of next week or early the following week.

Flexity #4523 was offloaded at Hillcrest this morning (i.e. Tue, Jan. 22), with Flexity #4408 being used to tow it off of CP's railcar.

4523 was delivery to the Barns around 6 pm.
Was having supper on Queen before a meeting and saw 4523 heading eastbound on its own passing me. If I had my camera out, would got a shot of it, as it stop in front of me.

4522 still not tracking

TTC Management said they had 100 new cars on the road yesterday
